Metallo-beta-lactamases (M beta L) were initially characterized in Japan, usually of the IMP-type, and found in Pseudomonas aeruginosa (PSA), Acinetobacter spp. (ACB), or Serratia marcescens (SM). The number of M beta L types has increased worldwide, but geographic dissemination within Japan has appeared limited. This study compares baseline levels of M beta L resistance from two 22-center studies (1996-1997) to the longitudinal sample (3 sites) of Japanese isolates from the SENTRY… CONTINUE READING
